… 13th Annual Nano for Defense Conference – Transitioning Emerging Technologies (NT4D), 16 – 19 November 2015, at the Pacific Palms Resort in City of Industry, CA (overlooking the San Gabriel Mountains just outside of Los Angeles). This event was initiated and is supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Army Research Laboratory, the Office of Naval Research, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. NT4D is the premier event addressing emerging nanoenabled technologies for defense. The event is designed to bring together technical representatives from industry, academia and government to discuss recent nanomaterial developments that have direct implications to enhancing or revolutionizing DoD programs in the near future. The event promotes critical partnerships, developments, and solutions to help ensure the transition of these developments from the lab, through the perilous “Valley of Death” to realizable technologies.

Many national programs on science and technology of nanostructures are providing research discoveries that hold considerable promise for both evolutionary and disruptive technology innovation. NT4D focuses on accelerating the rate of transition from discovery to technology for defense applications, and is committed to providing a fertile and stimulating forum for discussion on recent nanotechnology innovations in order to maximize their impact on defense and dual-use technologies. This focused conference brings together technical representatives from industry, academia, and government to discuss defense technology needs, identify exciting nano advances primed for technology development, forge connections to facilitate and accelerate the development process, identify obstacles to the accelerated transition of nanotechnology and emerging technology innovations, and address the most critical issues in real and emerging needs for defense. Collaboration and opportunities for innovation are a primary focus for this event.

There are a variety of opportunities for you to participate through attending, presenting, exhibiting, and sponsoring to name just a few. We look forward to seeing you in November.
